The Nifty, which started on a bullish note, built on its momentum and rallied past 10,650 after the Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy committee (MPC) raised repo rate by 25 basis points but maintained its neutral stance.

The Nifty index made a strong bullish candle on the daily charts and has now moved above crucial short-term moving averages such as 5, 13 and 20-EMA.

The Nifty made a bullish candle after a 'Hammer' like pattern, which is a bullish sign and suggests that follow-up buying could be seen in the next few sessions as well.

But, are we out of the woods? Maybe not. The Nifty will face its first immediate hurdle at 10,700, and then around 10,770, before it moves to its next target placed around 10,800-10,826. All long positions should be placed with a stop below 10,587.

The Nifty, which opened at 10,603.45, slipped marginally to 10,587 before bulls took charge of D-Street. The index rose to an intraday high of 10,698.35, before closing 91 points higher at 10,684.


"A robust bull candle on Nifty chart is clearly suggesting that the index made an attempt to start a fresh leg of the upswing from the recent lows of 10,550 which should logically take it beyond 10770 levels," Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

"Albeit, the advance-decline ratio is stronger, a tepid participation from Bank index post-RBI monetary policy accompanied with lack of a ‘buy’ signals on any of the technical oscillators on lower time frame charts shall be a cause for concern going forward. Hence, a follow-through buying in next session can be used as a catalyst to confirm the beginning of a fresh upswing," he said.

Mohammad added that a strong close beyond 10,770 can not only confirm that a bottom is in place around the index's recent low of 10,550, but also take it to much higher levels. With the initial target placed at around 10,826, a stop should be kept below 10,587.

The Bank Nifty formed a Hammer candle, followed by a Long Legged Doji Candle on the daily scale indicates that decline was bought. It managed to hold above its crucial rising trend line, which is formed by connecting swing lows of 24,753, 25,662, 25,668 and 26,069.

Now, the index has to hold above 26,250 to witness an up move towards 26,500 and 26,600, while on the downside immediate support is seen at 26,100, followed by 25,950, experts suggest.

India VIX fell 5.78 percent to 12.55. Falling volatility with rising put-call ratio suggests an overall bullish bias in the market.
